Everyone is pickin apart the speeches by those who freely gave of their words of wisdom at the convention last night in Tampa, FL. Like "pay the bills down, so we can control our future." That one had to ring in the ears of most people. Another, we need to face the "truth." Wow, how many are willing to do that? Yet, if we are going to survive as a great nation, these two things are of utmost importance, affecting the future of America. Wouldn't it be wise to ponder these thoughts. Ann was criticized for sounding like a corporate wife, like she was out of touch with other women, (especially single moms), as if she could rewrite her own story. Keep in mind, you are a product of your own making, for the most part. Your decisions will affect your life as well as those around you. Both candidates wives are well above the standard of most woman. As her story goes, she lived a "real" marriage, not one without pain, suffering, sorrow and hard work, like those in storybooks. It was an uphill climb by a beautiful, caring person, and no one can take that from her. They built-it by their blood, sweat and tears. The key word I heard was empathy --it is "tough out there", everything has a great cost, including sports. Everything is going up and up, without question. We all know that this is not right. It is harder to achieve the American dream. Hopefully, we are smart enough to know that we can change it. We all know that the breaks have got to be put on, and we need real solutions now. Who will lead us out of this mess? The one who is tried and true. One who knows what hard work is all about. And, one who understands that the best he has will never be good enough. One who will have to give every ounce of courage and the toughest years of his life for a greater cause, --liberty. You know who I'm talking about...And what about Ann? She will have the same role she has always had, a supportive, strong, caring and loving woman behind her humble man, picking him up when he falls and pushing him ahead to achieve his goal of greatness.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
